Hotel where Napoleon’s army was stationed (Veneto - Italy)

Hotel where Napoleon’s army was stationed

[ Jun.2016 ] When we had a short holiday in Veneto in north Italy, we stayed one night at a hotel called Ca’Sette which was in the suburbs of Bassano del Grappa. This property was built in the latter half of the 18th century by Golini-Sette, a wealthy family in Venice as their summer house. According to the leaflet in the room, at the end of the 18th century when Napoleon was leading his army for the Battle of Brenta, the army was stationed in the garden of this hotel. Because of that, the password of the free wifi of this hotel was Napoleon. Later when we went to the town of Bassano, I saw a plate on a house saying that Napoleon stayed here. So this hotel has got a long history, but the building itself was rebuilt recently in the modern way and the atmosphere was not as dignified as I expected.

Next morning, the breakfast was served in their garden, which was really lovely as you can see in the photo. There was a path and I could imagine that the noble ladies wearing long dress with parasols had some walks here. From the garden, we could see the town of Bassano and other villages.
